View Full Version : Any other ex-AMA Pro racers on this forum?

When I woke up in the hospital, I decided that the life of a pro motorcycle racer may not be in by best interest.
Taken at J.C. Agajanian's Ascot Park in Gardena California circa 1972. BTW, I'm the horizontal onelol!

Jon, that didn't look very good. I use to watch a lot of AMA Racing once upon a time. I use to also watch the Sidewinders up in Washougal, WA when I was a kid. A good friend of my wife down in Southern California's father raced AMA, Baja 1000 and other off-road races on Harleys winning many championships until being slammed during an off-road event ending up in a coma for a while. He now works at Home Depot in Corona, CA. My ex-Chiropractor treats quite a few of the big moto-cross guys down in the Inland Empire. Most of the factory practice tracks are in the area.

I was in critical care after a mishap on a stretched Honda three-wheeler back in '93. Never have recovered completely.
